Here is some more of the wife's knitting to look at. Apparently it's an Aran cardigan. These originate from the Aran Isles off Galway. A lot of patterns were distinctive family patterns. Not just for decoration. It was surmised that they were used to identify missing fishermen when their boats had been lost at sea and drowned. Some folk do not agree with this theory. I think the Clancy Brothers, Grace Kelly, Steve McQueen and Val Doonican made the Aran jumpers so famous.
Here are the back and front of a cardigan my wife knitted 2 years ago. Sadly it won't fit number 2 son any more. I wonder if it will fit the terrier?
